New Sponsor – Ross Sport

Big thanks to my newest sponsor, Ross Sport! These guys are big Evo enthusiasts in the UK, and were able to play a major role in helping me rebuild my car due to their crazy deals on EDM parts. The EDM stuff is the same as the JDM stuff, at around 60% of the cost.…

The Evo is BACK!

Been a very quiet off-season with the Evo out of commission, but I finally picked up the car yesterday, after a month or so at the body shop, mainly waiting on various parts. The car looked like it was in bad shape, but once you opened it up – well it still looked pretty bad…

Mil.Spec 100 Cell Cat

Been a quiet off-season with the Evo in repair & no changes planned for the M3 – my new catalytic converter, however, did finally arrive – 3 months after ordering the thing. It was the second part of a 2 stage process in me removing some knock the car was seeing – part 1 was…

UOA 12072019 (Evo)

UOA for the Evo with regular Red Line 5w30. Ton of hard usage ont he car, 3-4 track days, a few autocrosses, etc. The regular RL 5w30 seems to be showing a little weakness here again with the copper number. I may switch back to the race oil, especially given how well it did and…

Last Event 2019 – Laps, Inc. & Disaster

Hard to talk about this one – had an ice cold event today instructing with Laps, Inc. The track was cold, so each session I took a decent warm up lap. I had a solid lap during the second session, nailing a 2:45.45 – on the phone GPS, but the stopwatch confirms it. I was…

2019 Mid Season Updates

About as late of a “mid-season” update as I can get here. Quite a number of tweaks, changes, and upgrades for the Evo. Not as much for the M3, just some minor tweaks. Evo New upgraded sway-bar endlinks to fix the clunking, especially in the rear Adjustments to alignment (removed preload, later added a touch…

NASA HPDE 10052019 & 10062019

Going back full circle to my first track day at Autobahn South – I ran with the NASA HPDE group again, back from my nightmare scenario with the original brakes setup. Fortunately, I had a problem free 2 days of track where I was able to bring both the Evo & the M3. With NASA’s…

OSG by TRE

Sent my OSG to TRE around the end of August, just after my 3rd track day with the Evo. I was hoping for a 2 week turnaround, but got it about a month later, just in the nick of time. I received it on 9/30, but the bolts for the arms were left behind, and…

Blitz FMIC & MAP LICP

Now that I’ve been doing more track days, I’ve started coming across some of the limitations of the stock setup. While I’ve addressed things like oil cooling and oil starvation, I hadn’t messed with anything on the intake side, other than having an cone air filter. Actually, when I first got the car, I switched…

New Track Sensors Setup

Decided it was time to retire all the Panavise mounts I’ve been using – as phones have been getting bigger and longer in size, the Panvise has been more and more unstable in actually keeping my phone in place. I got the Ram mount for the phone holder, and a new GPS unit – the…
